House of Holland, Margaret Howell, Christopher Raeburn and Isabel Marant were among the winners recognised at the UK Fashion & Textiles Awards 2014 last night (May 22).

London label House of Holland won the UKFT Designer Award, while British designer Margaret Howell walked away with the UKFT Womenswear Brand Award for her contemporary collections.

Christopher Raeburn became a UKFT award winner for the third time as he was awarded the UKFT Menswear Brand accolade, having previously picked up the UKFT Rise Award in 2012 and the UKFT Designer Business Award in 2013. 

Jewellery brand Alex Monroe received the UKFT Accessories Award.

The public were invited to vote for their favourite designer collaboration for the first time this year in the newly launched MyDaily UKFT Designer Collaboration Award. Isabel Marant picked up the prize for her collection with H&M.

Dame Margaret Barbour was honoured with the NatWest UKFT Outstanding Achievement Award for her long-standing contribution to the fashion industry.

The House of Fraser UKFT Rise Award was presented to African-inspired swimwear brand Okun.

John Miln, chief executive of UKFT, said the organisation was “inundated” with entries this year:  “From young businesses just starting out on their journey, to iconic British fashion brands that have shaped the face of the industry, they’re all testament to the fact that the UK is leading the way in fashion, textiles and design across the globe.”

  • Wow what a great evening ,well done to the Team at UKFT.I paid my £400+ ticket but wonder why the likes of Wood, Parfitt, Frost and Guinness etc, so called celebraties, were there and did they pay?
    What relevance were they to the evening. Next time make the tkts less expensive so people from the Industry can attend. We dont need bums on seats!!
